And I will wear what I have sewn …

It has been 10 days since my last drawing, but the days were still filled with creating besides some Valentines day activities and Anime binge watching ;P

I made a dress for “Galentine’s Day” (the day before Valentine’s Day, to be spend with girl friends), and I actually wore it out for dinner and dancing with some girl friends.
It was a lot of fun. Here the dress:
Currently, I am working on a tulle skirt with a friend. One for me and one for her.
We started cutting out some of the layers as circle skirts. Next time we meet we will start sewing.
Unfortunately I won’t have much time due to work in the next couple of weeks.

The only piece we didn’t cut was the liner for my skirt, because the piece of fabric is too small for a circle. We tried to come up with a calculation on how we can still cut a semi circle, but it turned into trigonometry 🙂 
A friend of ours plugged it into his design software and it calculated what we needed. Pretty neat. I may still try to solve this the old fashioned way to see if I cannot remember some of that stuff from high school. 
Either way, because I am so busy the next couple of weeks, I won’t be able to finish the skirt soon, but I will try to at least do the daily doodles again.

Drawing a New Year

Although it may not seem like it from the frequency of my blog posts lately, I have been crafting and creating.
I have been picking up drawing a lot more lately and have not been crafting as much.
There are however, a few UFOs (un-finished objects LOL) still floating around:

  • A David Bowie crochet doll – Stardust style
    Can’t wait to finish that one as well as add finishing touches to the Freddy Mercury doll I have also been working on. Those two will rock the heavens and the stars!
  • A cardigan, which will take a while. But it’s a nice side project that I can work on and watch a show at the same time
  • I started a short dress. But that one I should have finished this week, because I want to wear it on the weekend.
Those projects are a little stranded because I have been focusing on visual art. I started daily doodles after finding the perfect empty little book and I have only skipped two days so far.

I am also counting last Friday, when I went to a figure drawing session at UWM’s art school. That was a lot of fun and I am planning on attending multiple of those.
Here all my results from that night.
And last but not least, I was experimenting with my new(-ish) ink brush pens and made a fan art of Lana Del Rey.
